The skin surrounding my hairline is white!

Is it ever happened to someone else?

it looks like scar tissue, so that means that the doctor trasplanted some fu in white areas that didn’t grow.

I think the additional hair is covering your skin, so now the rest of your forehead is getting sunlight, so it will make the scalp look white.

I have seen this several times over the years and I remember one of my doctors explaining that it was due to less blood flow at the base of the grafts where the recipient incisions were made...it's a very temporary situation and will remedy itself as the blood vessels heal.

I agree that less light to the scalp will equal less pigment from the sun. Also remember that scarring also occurs under the skin where the grafts heal which is perfectly normal.
